…But likely more valuable.
Then again, the artists I’ve mentioned the cinematic exercise to all tend to agree that it’s a really good way to learn how to paint.
The pear on the left was my first attempt at a purely-from-observation digital painting. It took a lot of squinting and puzzled facial expressions (which I’m convinced helps me think) to understand what crazy things the colors were doing. I believe the resulting image resembles a pear, so we’ll call that one a success. The apple on the right is starting up faster due to having a better grasp of how all this light bouncing works and I intend to spend more time on it, even if pears are far superior to apples.
I’m beginning to regret having placed it in a super wrinkly chunk of fabric, though.
Stopping work on the apple. Screw cloth >:|~
